The new findings presented to an anti-terrorism court in Pakistan state that all 26/11 accused were LeT members operating under Zakiur Rehman Lakhvi.

The report presented to the court conducting the trial of seven accused, including LeT operations commander Zakiur Rehman Lakhvi, states that there is “sufficient incriminating evidence on record against those arrested for orchestrating the Mumbai attacks.”
